Scoring close to the top in our blender tests, the Vitamix Pro 750 is undeniably a fantastic kitchen appliance and delivered a performance that very well could have earned it an award. However, this blender costs a decent amount more than our award winners, precluding it from winning, as you can get similar performance for significantly less with some of the other top models. The Pro 750 distinguished itself with its great performance at grinding harder food items — making exceptionally fine powdered sugar and corn flour and doing a great job grating parmesan cheese. However, this blender's scores dropped in the convenience metric, which lowered its overall scores.Editor's Note: This review was updated on May 4, 2022, taking a deeper dive into comparisons and product recommendations.

Our Analysis and Test Results
To find out which blender truly ruled them all, we bought the latest and greatest models on the market and judged them side-by-side to find the best. We split our testing process into five different rating metrics, each weighted based on its significance. These metrics are Smoothies, Ice, Convenience, Pureeing, and Grinding, with the results of the Vitamix Pro 750 outlined in the sections below.
Smoothies earned the most weight (30%) of our test metrics. We judged the Pro 750 on its performance at making four different beverages: a green smoothie, Oreo malt, a berry smoothie, and a hearty fruit and oat concoction. This model did exceptionally well, landing towards the top of the pack.
Using the "Smoothie" preset function, the Pro 750 created an essentially perfect green smoothie that was silky-smooth and effectively poured right through our sieve without issue.
The finished smoothie had an even and consistent taste profile, without any unblended chunks of greens.
The Pro 750 carried its excellent performance into our berry smoothie test, practically obliterating all of the seeds with only the tiniest bit of unblended food caught in the sieve.
The rest of the drink was perfectly blended, with a great texture and taste throughout.
Performance dropped a little in our fruit and oat test, with some oats and almonds escaping the blade and remaining whole. However, the Pro 750 finished the test with a fantastic performance in our Oreo shake challenge, completely blending the beverage without issue and totally breaking down the cookies.
Accounting for a fifth of the total score, our Ice metric comprises two tests: blending a perfect frozen margarita and crushing ice only. The Pro 750 again delivered a stellar performance here, tying for first place with other top blenders.
This model completely crushed a pitcher full of ice without the slightest difficulty, accomplishing the task in about 15 seconds or so. It carried this awesome performance into our margarita test, blending an incredibly smooth and consistent frozen beverage.
Meriting the same weight as our Ice metric, our Convenience rating metric is also worth 20% of the overall score. We compared how easy it is to clean each blender, whether or not it has any preset functions, and the ease of removing the lid to determine the score for each product. The Pro 750 only had a slightly above average showing for this metric.
The Pro 750 is not dishwasher compatible, but it is relatively easy to clean by hand. The pitcher is wide enough to easily reach inside, and there is plenty of space around the blades, with no annoying crevices or lips to trap food.
There is plenty of ventilation on the base for the bottom of the pitcher, allowing you to place it back on the motor before it is completely dry without too much fear of mold growing. This model features a digital timer, as well as a small set of preset functions.
However, these presets are labeled with icons that aren't the most intuitive, requiring a little time to get used to. The lid is also very easy to remove from the pitcher, preventing any accidental spills or splashes.
Taking credit for 15% of the final score, our Pureeing metric is composed of a trio of tests. We rated the Pro 750 on how well it made almond and peanut butter and mixed tomato soup, as well as if it could heat up the soup hot enough to serve. The Pro 750 earned a perfect score for its profound performance in our Pureeing metric.
This blender made a nice and creamy spread when tasked with pureeing peanuts and almonds into butter. It took a little over 8 minutes, with this appliance showing no signs of difficulty or overheating. It also did an excellent job mixing the soup, creating a velvety-smooth tomato soup that almost completely poured through the sieve.
This model even heated the soup quite well, achieving a temperature of 150°F at the conclusion of the "Soup" preset cycle.
For the conclusion of our test, we ranked how well each blender did at grinding up food. We again used three tests - powdered sugar, corn flour, and parmesan cheese — to judge the performance of each blender in this metric, worth the remaining 15% of the total score. The Vitamix Pro 750 delivered an exceptional showing here, too.
This appliance was stellar at creating powdered sugar, reducing the granulated sugar into an extremely fine powder. This product also did a fantastic job at milling corn flour from popcorn kernels, with 99% of the final product passing through the sieve without issue.
The Pro 750 finished out with a solid performance at grating parmesan cheese, but the resulting grind just wasn't quite as fine as that produced by some of its fellow top-tier contenders.
Should You Buy the Vitamix Pro 750?
Though this is an absolutely fantastic blender, we think you can get other models that perform similarly that are more wallet-friendly. However, if you have the funds to buy this model, you surely won't be disappointed.
What Other Blender Should You Consider?
The Vitamix Pro 750 nearly matched the performance of both the Cuisinart Hurricane Pro and the Vitamix A2500 Ascent Series, but those two models will save you a chunk of change. If you want a blender with a premium performance but a less premium price tag, check out the NutriBullet Blender, which retails for about 1/4 of the cost.
